SyrupCast Podcast Ep. 137: The Freedom to buy a $1,400 iPhone 8

Apple Event

This week on the SyrupCast, Igor Bonifacic, Rose Behar, Sameer Chhabra, and Patrick O’Rourke do their best to predict what will be unveiled at Apple’s upcoming event.

Apple’s iPhone 8 keynote is coming up soon on September 12th, so the team sits down and does their best to predict all the announcements they expect to see at the keynote. It’s anticipated that there will be a few new iPhones, a 4K Apple TV set-top box, and possibly a new LTE Apple Watch as well.

This week also marks a SyrupCast milestone — our first audio listener question! Tune in to hear the SyrupCast team’s thoughts.

Today’s podcast is brought to you by Aviva Canada, a leading property and casualty insurance group providing home, automobile, leisure/lifestyle and business insurance to 2.9 million customers.


Severe weather and natural disasters are on the rise, and Aviva’s Plan & Protect app will help your family prepare for earthquakes, severe wind, winter storms, wildfires, and floods.
